Boston College Eagles basketball and embattled head coach Steve Donahue have had their best 24-hour stretch all year, starting with a shocking upset over the #1 Syracuse Orange, and wrapping up with landing a premium recruit in 2015 power forward Jeremy Miller.
Miller, a product of Olivier Hanlan’s own New Hampton School in New Hampshire, is the #114 recruit in the 247 composite listings, and the #26 power forward in the class. He is a three-star recruit according to 247, but Rivals has him as a four-star recruit on their Rivals 150 list.
The 6-9, 200 lb. forward spurned offers from Maryland, Providence, Florida State, and UConn to come to Boston College.
According to 247, Miller named Boston College as his leader a full year and a half ago, so this was perhaps not a major surprise, but he is nonetheless a critical get for Donahue and his coaching staff. The 2014 and 2015 classes had previously been empty, and 2015 is of great importance because the large 2011 class will be turning over en masse. Regardless of who will be walking the Boston College courtside two seasons from now, keeping Miller will be on the agenda.
We welcome Jeremy to the Heights.
